Anniversary of Professor Hoffmann's Birth

Postby Tom Sawyer » July 23rd, 2019, 6:09 am

Professor Hoffmann was born July 23, 1839. If my arithmetic is correct, that would make today the 180th anniversary of his birth. Also worth noting is the fact that later this year will be the 100th anniversary of his passing away.

At least for the time being, I have taken down my S.W. Erdnase blog.

In some ways, the father of so many young magicians.
